The first step to finding work in the tech industry is to find an internship, and the vast majority of them are in the form of virtual reality (VR).
While the job market is certainly improving in the last few years, the number of positions is still small and not enough to fill them.
But what if you could actually get a full-time job in VR?
It’s a big leap, but the answer could be in your hands right now.
And thanks to a recent collaboration between Microsoft and The Walt Disney Company, it looks like you can.
Microsoft is giving Oculus Rift developers an opportunity to apply to work for the company in the new year.
This is an exciting opportunity for developers to have their work directly supported by Microsoft and Disney, and this collaboration means that you will be able to take advantage of these talented and motivated Oculus Rift devs to help us make VR more accessible to more people.
For those of you who don’t know, Microsoft is the company behind the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, and Disney is a leading content creator and producer.
The two companies collaborated on the development of the Disney Magic: The Gathering digital experience.
Now, these two companies are collaborating to support developers in VR with an internship program that gives them the chance to work on VR content for the new-year.
The program is available for all VR developers who are already working on Oculus Rift content, so you don’t have to go into any special VR course to apply.
Just download the Microsoft app and start playing with the Oculus app to learn how to develop VR apps.
You’ll be able access a virtual studio and receive a portfolio of content to work with in VR.
This content can then be released for free to Oculus Rift owners to use.
While this program is new, it’s already working out pretty well for Microsoft and the Oculus VR team.
This year, the Oculus team will be running a special event where developers can test their VR apps and gain valuable feedback from Oculus’ VR team members.
And, if you have a Microsoft Developer account, you’ll be invited to the same event as Microsoft’s VR team to get your hands on Oculus VR and see what’s possible in VR in the future.
You can apply for the internship through either the Microsoft Developer Portal or the Oculus App Store.
You can also apply online at Microsoft.com/oculusvr and the app is available now for iOS and Android.
Microsoft says that the Microsoft VR internship program is designed for developers who want to work at Microsoft, and that developers can apply by either submitting their CV to the portal or to the Oculus website.
You will be notified by email when your application is approved.
The app is currently available for Windows, macOS, and Linux.
If you want to apply on Android, you can find instructions for that platform on Microsoft’s support website.
